Hi,

 

I currently use am Overo Water to run a headless linux system. I am looking to upgrade to the Storm series, and I would like to add wireless capability for configuration and infield update capability, without having to attach a cable to our device.

 

Most of the time I would require the Bluetooth and WiFi module to be off. Has anyone checked the power consumption running an IronStorm and WaterStorm side by side in this configuration. They should be pretty similar/the same?

 

I assume there must be some way in software to turn off this device. Is it as simple as this post or is there more to do.

Kind regards
